This summer, we are working to upgrade the research experience by making ongoing improvements to our Research Guides.
You may encounter changes in the look and feel of the Research Guides website along with structural changes to our existing guides. If you have any questions or concerns about this process please let us know.

About this LibGuide

This is the FAU Libraries subject guide for Chemistry!  The goal of this page is to provide students with prompt access to FAU library resources in this subject. The following can be found on this page:

  • Articles & Theses:   this page provides links to databases, or large, online collections of journal articles.  Some databases also provide statistics and figures.  Dissertation and theses can be identified and located through this page.
  • Chemistry Journals:  read scholarly literature published by professionals in the field.
  • Books & E-Books:  access the FAU Libraries catalog to locate books and other library materials owned by the libraries.  Broaden your search by looking through links to the Union Catalog and WorldCat.
  • Chem. Info. on the Web:  not all information on the internet is junk!  This page provides links to governmental and research organizations and also chemical, science, and patent information sources.

For assistance in using the library or conducting research, contact me or another librarian!
